During the harsh winter of 1779-80, Theodosia Ford and her family shared their strategically-located home in Morristown, New Jersey, with George Washington, his wife and military entourage thus becoming an important headquarters during the American Revolutionary War.

The National Park Service commissioned the photographs of the 12-room Georgian Revival mansion.  The images feature rich color, detail, and dramatic contrasts of light and shadow using only existing window light with a sparing use of a technique called “light painting.”  The effect is an ethereal quality that spurs the imagination in a way that transcends visiting the actual rooms.  The exhibition 17” x 25” photographs also highlights the Ford Mansion as a residence.
